Heritage Financial Group, Inc. 2011 Net Income More Than Doubles Versus 2010, Increasing To $3.8 Million Or $0.47 Per Diluted Share

The non-accretable discount decreased to $89.5 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2011 from $98.8 million on a linked-quarter basis, primarily driven by net charge-offs in the FDIC-assisted loan portfolios and transfers to accretable discount. The accretable discount increased to $12.8 million for the current quarter from $8.8 million on a linked-quarter basis, primarily driven by transfers from accretable discount as a result of the improvement in cash flows received from the Company's FDIC-assisted loan portfolios. Moreover, the improvement in cash flows received also negatively affected the accretion for the loss-share receivable and turned it negative $72,000.

Asset Quality

Total nonperforming loans, excluding loans acquired in FDIC-assisted acquisitions, were $7.0 million at December 31, 2011, down from $8.0 million at September 30, 2011. Other real estate owned and repossessed assets, excluding assets acquired in FDIC-assisted acquisitions, were $3.4 million at December 31, 2011, up from $1.8 million at September 30, 2011, and primarily driven by the resolution process of moving nonperforming loans to foreclosure. Nonperforming loans to total loans, excluding loans acquired in FDIC-assisted acquisitions, decreased to 1.62% as of December 31, 2011, from 1.90% as of September 30, 2011. Net charge-offs to average outstanding loans, excluding loans acquired in FDIC-assisted acquisitions, on an annualized basis, were 0.04% for the fourth quarter of 2011 versus 0.73% for the third quarter of 2011, while the year-to-date net charge-offs were 0.91% as of December 31, 2011, versus 0.87% as of December 31, 2010.

The provision for loan losses decreased to $595,000 for the fourth quarter of 2011 from $1.0 million for the third quarter of 2011, driven primarily by a decrease in annualized net charge-offs. At December 31, 2011, the allowance for loan losses represented 1.72% of total loans outstanding, excluding loans acquired in FDIC-assisted acquisitions, versus 1.65% at September 30, 2011.
